Euoplocephalus was an ankylosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of North America. This dinosaur weighed almost 3 tons and had a width of 2 meters and was around 5.5 meters long. Euoplocephalus was equipped with fused bone plates on its back that acted as body armor as well as a pair of horns that protruded from the back of the neck, possibly as a defense against being grabbed by the neck. For defense Euoplocephalus was armed with a foot wide tail club that could be swung like a medieval flail and had the ability to break bone. In addition Euoplocephalus also supported a pair of armored eyelids, like Ankylosaurus.

History

Euoplocephalus had 9% of its total genome completed during construction of the original park;[1] implying that it was planned to be an attraction some time in the future.

It is known that Euoplocephalus was subject to cruelty at some time in the past, although it is unknown if there are any surviving populations remaining.[2]
